to "weekends with alex witt." let's get to what's happening right now out there. as president obama heads back to the u.s., just about 90 minutes or so from now after the final stop on his mideast trip he visited the fables city of petra, jordan, this morning. and one major topic of discussion for the president, the civil war going on in nearby syria, and the massive number of syrian refugees now in jordan. nbc's peter alexander is traveling with the president and joins us from amman. so peter with a good saturday morning to you. how has this trip gone so far for the president in jordan? >> well, right now, alex, the president's enjoying the end of his trip. punctuating it, as you noted, with a trip to the celebrated archaeological site in this country known as petra. the focus of the trip has largely been on the future. but at least for the last couple hours he's focusing on the middle east past. advisers tell me this is actually a place that president obama added to the itinerary. a destination that he very much wanted to see. sandstorms delayed his travel yesterday. but today that's proving
of president obama's agenda. buzz feed reports he will hit the road this week to take his message to the people while congress is in recess. it's been over 100 days since the newtown massacre. and since then, there have been over 2,000 gun deaths. the debate on gun control may have started months ago, by the looks of it the fight is just beginning. governor rendell. how effective do you think go mayor bloomberg and his media blitz can be? >> wayne lapierre may not know much, but he knows about insanity. >> that he does. >> that's number one. number two, he says the people don't want mike bloomberg in their living rhoades. those ads don't have mike bloomberg's name on them. those ads are very effective and they're striking a responsible chord. because that's what people believe. the question is can that belief be translated into pressure put on congressmen and senators. and i believe it can. because this is one area where i mean i'm stunned when the gop, all eight of their senators voted against universal background checks, i was absolutely stunned. this is party that's trying to reshape their i
the private parts of ducks. this is part of president obama stimulus plan and just one example of the kind of spending decisions that add up to massive debt and deficit. tonight, there is a week-long series on what to cut. >> government is not the solution to the problem. government the problem. >> rare of big government is over. >> every president called to streamline federal bureaucracy but none succeeded. >> government is largeer than it ever has been. the debt is growing at record rate. >> adjusted for inflation. government spending went up from $882 billion spent every year in 1980s to $1.48 trillion in the 1990s. $2.24 trillion a year and the first decade of the 21st century. mast ited that government will have spent almost as much in the first four years as a new decade as in the 1990s. >> in the past there bar crisis like world war ii or the korean war, nondefense spending was cut by 20 to 30%. >> that didn't happen after 9/11 or after the financial crisis. >> nothing typifies the expansion of government as much as the growing wealth of the washington, d.c. area. region with few ne
korea. >>> well, tensions rising over the civil war in syria. just of course as president obama arrives in the region. >> that's right. the president is in israel for meetings with prime minister benjamin netanyahu. accusations by the syrian government and rebels of a chemical weapons attack have now raised new concerns. >> important to note there is no verification that either side used chemical weapons, but a u.s. lawmaker says there is in his words a high probability that the government did or is about to. >> we need that final verification, but given everything we know over the last year and a half i mike rogers intelligence chairman was under the conclusion that they were either positioned for use and ready to do that or in fact have been used. >> now, of course israel concerned about the war in syria just across the northeastern border. and these latest claims may increase pressure on the u.s. to perhaps get more involved in some way or another. >> for the latest on this situation in syria and president obama's middle east trip overall we have live reports now from john king in je

"the lead" with jake tapper starts right now. >>> president obama again caught off guard by a hot mike. i'm jake tapper and this is "the lead." the national lead president obama on open mike takes a dig at congress to israel's leader. by congress of course we mean republicans. house speaker john boehner reacts in our exclusive interview. >>> also in national the cdc now says one in every 50 children has autism. one in 50. there are real questions being raised at how the cdc arrived at these numbers. >>> and the sports lead. how long has it been since the miami heat lost a game? well, back then most of us had not even heard of the harlem shake. good time. >>> we begin with the world lead. and finally, all sides of the middle east peace conflict are seeing eye to eye on something. none of them expect much to come out of president obama's first trip to israel as president. the president just wrapped up a news conference with the israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu in jerusalem and as you'll see from this clip things are off to a chummy start for two leaders with

>>> it is time for "end point." cameron russell. >> yesterday, obama was overheard on the mike saying he was glad to escape congress. and i think it is a -- a sign of how polarized and insane our congress is, if he prefers the balancing act of israel and palestine. >> in an interview with jake tapper, so much for the charm offensive. but he also said he didn't take it personally. >> we're talking about how much polarization there is. one issue where there is less is the issue of same-sex marriage, which we are talking about a little bit this morning. the supreme court will hear arguments on tuesday and wednesday of next week on this issue around which now there is a little bit of a media frenzy much everybody lined up. people want to say -- people in public life, politicians, religious figures want to get on record now before these arguments, where they stand. hillary clinton this week, rob partman last week, a real moment. >> a historical, seminole moment where people feel the need to get on the record now. if you make a statement after next week, is that too late? >> i don't

that is not good enough for obama. >> plus, should the republican party take a different direction to attract women and minority voters? >> we need to call out the hypocrisy on the left. >> ladies and gentlemen, governor mike huckabee. >> mike: thank you very much and happy st. patrick's day weekend to everybody. i wore the tie just for the occasion. only weekend of the whole year i get to wear it so i hope you like it. welcome to huckabee from the fox news studios in new york city. my first trip to israel occurred nearly 40 years ago in july 1973. just a couple of months before the yom kippur war i was a teenager at the time. i purchase a map and ask the people there to open the map and show me where israel is. israel is not on the map. interesting, isn't it? israelis are asked to make peace with the people who refuse to acknowledge their existences. israel is condemned for its construction of a security wall but until it was erected it was common for terrorists to strap bombs to their bellies, board a bus and kill innocent men, women and children. with the construction of that wall those acts of

but at a lower rate than it should be. we lost over 700,000 government jobs during the obama administration despite all the right wing talk about him the fact is the deficit is getting smaller and there are fewer and fewer government jobs. the addition of jobs we had last month, 236,000 jobs, 70 those of those were business service jobs. that's a good sign for the future. accountants office workers being hired that employeers expect more business in the future. but the sequester and the press for austerity and the increase of social security tax are all slowing our progress to where we should be. >> michael: of course these companies would be hiring accountants now because they're making so much damn money because they're not paying enough wages to their workers. that's part and parcel of how it works. >> yes remember a fundamental tenant of the chicago school and i went to the chicago school is to get rid of unions, that means driving down wages. i just reported in my column in tax analysts, tax notes, if you take the average increase of income for the bottom 90% of americans from 1966 whe

president obama the same way they embraced our last two presidents. thank you. >> so you had to get a polling question in there at the end? chuck, you're just encourageable. look, opening premise to your question was, that having failed to achieve peace in the middle east, in my first term, that i must have screwed up somehow. and i will tell you, i hope i'm a better president now than when i first came into office. but my commitment was not to achieve a peace deal in my first year. or my second year or my third year. that would have been nice. what i said was, i was not going to wait to start on the issue. until my second term, because i thought it was too important. and that exactly what i did. i'm absolutely sure there are a host of things i could have done that would have been more deft and would have created better optics. but ultimately, this is a really hard problem. it's been lingering for over six decades. and the parties involved have, yes, some profound interests that you can't spin, you can't smooth over, and it is a hard slog to work through all of these issues. i will
